Our Outdoor Vendors
Each Saturday and Sunday, hundreds of DC’s best local artists and crafters set up tents in the street and plazas surrounding the market. Eastern Market’s arts and craft vendors are made up of painters, sculptors, independent designers, woodworkers, jewelers, potters, and photographers! The weekend market is open each Saturday and Sunday from 9am-3pm.
Below is the directory of our outdoor vendors:
This is an old Eastern European craft Jeff Jacobs picked up in 1987 at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the Mall. Glenn Van Antwerp, a master fan-bird carver from Michigan, taught him the basics. It is a unique and fascinating process that yields a whole bird out of one continuous piece of wood. No glue or assembly. Since 2012 Jacob has developed and refined a style for the hummingbird and like to think he brings something unique to the craft. He usually can be found on Saturdays at Eastern Market where he both demonstrates the process and sells them. Jacob also is a carpenter/cabinet-maker/handy-man licensed in Virginia.
Joseph Harrison Snyder
Joseph Harrison Snyder is a full time artist, selling paintings and prints every Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 4pm. On weekends, he is usually found in a tent opposite to Tunnicliff’s Tavern on Seventh Street.
Joseph lives and works just a few blocks away. The District of Columbia is his adopted home and the subject of much of his work. As predictable as it may sound to say, he really loves this city. Loves it for its classical beauty and its unparalleled oddity, for its immense history and bewilderingly rapid changes, for its fascinating collection of transient people and its proudly ensconced locals. He thinks one of the highest callings of an artist is to document the community they are part of. He makes his stand here.
Joseph does social and political commentary as well as painting the physical city. If he had to say, he would say his most admired artist is Honore Daumier. That is all he has to say. Its probably better for artist not to write too much.
